UK football fans will need a Sky Sports subscription to watch Tottenham vs Brentford in 4K. To watch in HD, non-Sky customers can purchase a Now TV pass. In the US, subscribers to ESPN+ can watch the game on TV and stream it on the ESPN+ app. Remember to use a VPN when trying to stream away from home in another country.

While this is undoubtedly the draw that both teams would have wished for Tottenham vs Brentford is far from a slam dunk for the home side. Brentford have been pushing for promotion for a fair few seasons now and currently sit in fourth in the Championship table riding a particularly good run of form.

For Tottenham, it’s not been exactly vintage of late with the most recent 3-0 victory against Leeds something of a standout result of an indifferent spell, which began with losing the league lead to Liverpool, that has been hallmarked by overly defensive performances against weaker sides. That’s something that Brentford will be thinking about, knowing that Mourinho’s current football phenotype has been vulnerable to late equalisers.

Now at the semi-final stage, the Carabao Cup games will go to extra-time before a penalty shoot-out, if the two sides cannot be separated. Get ready for a nail-biter.

It’s a 7.45pm GMT (2.45pm ET) kick-off on Tuesday 5th January. Read on to find out how to watch a Tottenham vs Brentford live stream, wherever you are in the world…

ESPN is the Carabao Cup rights holder in the US but this fixture won’t be available on live broadcast TV. Instead the Tottenham vs Brentford semi-final is on EPSN+ which can be viewed through the EPSN+ app on all good smart platforms. 

Subscription to EPSN+ costs just $12.99 per month as part of a triple threat with Disney+ and Hulu and represents an excellent deal for a tonne of sports and entertainment content.

Going to be outside the country at the time of the match? You can use a VPN to watch ESPN+ from abroad as if you were back at home in the States.

Tottenham vs Brentford live stream abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant rights holders, you won’t be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as NordVPN.

Nord VPN from £2.86 per month
You can get three months free when you sign up to a two-year plan, bringing VPN access to six simultaneous smart devices including desktop computers, laptops, mobiles and tablets running Windows, Mac OS, iOS and Android. Nord offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.View Deal

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the match. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.
